On Friday evening 20th July there was a colour ringed juvenile black-headed gull Red 24L1 by the car park. This was ringed as a nestling at Belvide Reservoir, Staffs on 16th June 2018 so quite a rapid dispersal. Many thanks to Colin McShane for the ringing information.

A few hours round here yesterday, lovely and quiet when the England match was on!

Little unusual bird wise, with a drake wigeon on the spit probably most notable.

Plenty of mallard ducklings, and young Canada geese, mute swan, moorhen, coot, black-headed gull and lapwing, too. A couple of full-grown juvenile lapwing good to see.

About 7 or 8 common tern, giving superb views at the western end, and willow tit, sedge warbler, Cetti's warbler, the common warbler species and a water rail all seen or heard around here, as well as an active great crested grebe nest.

16 tufted duck, 12 gadwall and 1 teal from the Teal Hide.
